Silent Night~Creepmas 2014~Day 4~Smeared and Smudged Smeared Ink

Welcome Sunday!

It is Day 4 for the 2014 12 Days of Creepmas presented by Smeared and Smudged. Today is also a Smeared Ink day, meaning Jolly Bloggers are asked to use stamps, rubber or digi by Smeared Ink. For details written more eloquently than I can do, please hop over to our dear hostess Terra's blog HERE.

I am also sharing this with Smudgy Antics Anything Goes Challenge this month. See the creepyness HERE.

For my Silent Night canvas I used Smeared Ink's, The Bah Humbug Tree, the Calaveras Altar Candle and a background paper by Delicious Darkness.

I printed the stamp onto white Core'dinations card stock using my inkjet printer. The sentiment I created inside Photoshop Elements. 

The images were colored with Sharpie Markers, Bic Mark Its and Infinity Permanent Markers. I really like these economical markers and there is no smearing or bleeding for me using this cardstock.

The edges of the print was toned with Black Soot Distress Ink. I used Black Soot and Antique Linen on the sentiment tag. The splatters are Distress Ink and Paint.

The cardboard substrate started as a spraying base scrap. I am very messy with spray inks, they get everywhere lol. This one I liked how the layers came up on it so I used it as my substrate.

Thanks so much for looking! When you can hop over to Smeared Ink to see all the wonderful new additions to the available stamps, so creepy good!

Don't forget, use a Smeared Ink stamp and link your creation to Smudgy Antics  Anything Goes Challenge this month!
